As part of its ongoing strategy to offer a wide range of deep-cycle battery options for the renewable energy market, Trojan Battery Co., Santa Fe Springs, Calif., has added a new 140AH 12-AGM battery to its product family.
The new 12-AGM is ideal for applications that require maintenance-free battery power, such as in remote areas where proper maintenance cannot be guaranteed.
“The 12-AGM, 12-volt battery is designed to support a wide range of applications, including renewable energy and backup power for industrial and residential applications, especially those found in remote areas where there is limited access to clean water which is required to maintain traditional flooded batteries,” said Bryan Godber, Trojan’s senior vice president of renewable energy.
“This new addition to our AGM line shows Trojan’s continued commitment to offer a broad range of sealed deep-cycle battery options for renewable energy applications. The 12-AGM is proudly made in the USA and expands Trojan’s range of amp hour offerings in our AGM line,” Godber added.
Trojan’s deep-cycle AGM (absorbed glass mat) batteries feature a number of design elements to provide optimum performance.
Robust plates extend the life of Trojan’s deep-cycle AGM batteries. A separator of glass fibers isolates the positive and negative plates while acting as a blotter to absorb electrolyte. The separator is compressed between plates to assure contact with the plate surfaces for reliable power generation. A computer-generated, low- calcium grid design delivers high power density and reduces gas emissions. In addition, the battery features a flame-arresting, one-way press relief vent to prevent excessive pressure buildup.
Trojan’s deep-cycle AGM batteries tolerate low temperatures, resist shock and vibration, and have low internal resistance for higher discharge current and high charging efficiency.
